Welcome to the Career Resource Center
Finding the right job becomes a crucial concern for law students early in their education. The South Texas Career Resource Center (CRC) begins a student’s orientation into the legal profession the first year of law school. While each student is ultimately responsible for their own career planning, the CRC’s First Year Focus sets the path for students to go anywhere they want to from South Texas.
The comprehensive First Year Focus begins during a students’ second semester, with programs on resume and cover letter writing, interviewing skills, mock interviews, dressing for success, networking skills, and judicial clerkships. South Texas’ Houston location provides students access to a vibrant legal market that includes opportunities at law firms, corporations, non-profits, government agencies, and the courts. Individual counseling through the CRC helps students pursue these types of opportunities.
Each fall and spring, the CRC coordinates interviews with regional and national law firms, corporations, and government agencies. During the fall semester over 1,000 on-campus interviews are traditionally conducted. Students also have the opportunity to interview off-campus at a variety of programs that includes the Sun Belt Minority Recruiting Program, Public Service Career Day, Texas in Washington Recruitment Program, the Patent Law Job Fair, and the Southeastern Minority Job Fair.
The CRC counselors, create individualized job search plans for students. The extensive library in the CRC office opens access to local, national, and specialized directories relevant to jobs in the legal market, career related publications, and comprehensive firm resumes. With finding the right job a top concern for law students, South Texas’ CRC is ready to assist in this vital search. Students are welcome to contact the CRC at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to working with you during law school and beyond.
The Career Resource staff believes development and preparation are the most effective mechanisms to prepare students to find employment. Our goal is to help you explore various career options, build valuable job search skills, understand your strengths and abilities, and take responsibility for your own career planning in the process.
